Are there any options for customising the outsider traits according to specific lineage/ancestries? Or is it a single standardized race

I’m not sure I understand the question? You mean more than selecting your heritage gift?

Yeah like if I decided to make a Titan aasimar would it be different to a Solar aasimar or a Coatl aasimar for instance.
Of maybe things like the Elf Fey’ri?

Well, we have Aasimar and Tiefling heritage gifts, and we have also have rules for mixed parentage from any two heritages. But heritage gifts are a wide open design space. I've no idea what the future will being in terms of heritage gifts (from us or from third parties).

I don't think we've seen the rules on mixed parentage. I'm guessing that you pick one heritage and then the gift from another heritage, thus allowing you to play an elf/aasimar or halfling/tiefling. Am I correct?

Halfling-Titan Aasimar !!
 

Wow Hellish legacy and resistance is so much greater than Celestial legacy resistance. I hope there still time to balance that out. Fire resistance/immunity > radiant. 3 good spells once a day each versus guidance and a tiny once a day your level touch heal?

Yeah; unfortunately, these aasimar kind of ignore the abilities you got for picking Scourge, Fallen, or Protector.

You've confirmed that you pick a main heritage and the gift from a second heritage to represent a person of mixed ancestry (which is a nice, simple, effective way to do it). But now I'm making some high-level characters to use when testing monsters, so I wonder: where do you pick your paragon gift from?

Linked to the traits, not the gift.

Though you've literally just made me think something that I'm going to check if we can squeeze in.
